I am a stay-at-home-mum that of course have lots to do every day. But this does not prevent me from having thoughts and opinions about everything under the sun. Some days I really want to get those thoughts on to a piece of paper but to keep a paper diary has never worked for me. Nor do I have a lot of time nowadays to keep my correspondence up with my dear friends all over the world. My blog has become my diary and also my way of informing my friends what goes on in my life.
My children have not agreed to share their lives with the world so I try to protect them with their petnames. My friends know who each child is in reality. And to protect some of my own identity, I use the name JR Tolkien would have given me or ought I say, the name that I would have been given in Galadriel’s kingdom?
